Hello!

I'm trying to follow the guides:
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Bluetooth
https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Bluetooth_Headset
But I get some errors which I am not sure how to solve.
Bluetooth should be working to some extent since I am able to connect and use a bt keyboard.

The device I am trying to connect:
Code:
[bluetooth]# info 08:EB:ED:30:02:2E
Device 08:EB:ED:30:02:2E (public)
   Name: SoundCore 2
   Alias: SoundCore 2
   Class: 0x00240414
   Icon: audio-card
   Paired: yes
   Trusted: yes
   Blocked: no
   Connected: no
   LegacyPairing: no
   UUID: Audio Sink                (0000110b-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb)
   UUID: A/V Remote Control Target (0000110c-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb)
   UUID: A/V Remote Control        (0000110e-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb)
   UUID: Handsfree                 (0000111e-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb)
   UUID: PnP Information           (00001200-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb)
   Modalias: usb:v099Ap0500d011B

I successfully Paired with the device and trusted it. But when I try to connect I get an error.
In bluetoothctl:
Code:
[bluetooth]# connect 08:EB:ED:30:02:2E
Attempting to connect to 08:EB:ED:30:02:2E
Failed to connect: org.bluez.Error.Failed

In blueman-manager:
Code:
Connection Failed:  Protocol not available

I also probably need some help configuring ALSA but that is a later problem I can try to solve once it actually connects.

I am thankful for all the help I can get! :)

I think I solved it.
It worked if I started bluealsa and then tried to connect. I don't think the guide reflects this. Maybe it should be added to the guide?

I will try to get alsa configured so that I can verify that it works.
